I was told by several people that Continental Pizza in Kensington was sold. I called the restaurant this evening and asked if it had been sold. The response I was given was “no sir, the same family still owns the restaurant.”
For now it seems to just be a rumor, but one that has travelled quickly. According to restaurant management it has not been sold.
Continental Pizza, located at 10532 Connecticut Ave., was founded in Kensington in 1967.

Please read a few of the rules we used at the end of this article to avoid any confusion.
